“Mountain View is an outstanding holiday home that is perfect for larger families, particularly those travelling with friends/grandparents (who can have their own privacy in the self-contained one bedroom annexe). The photos do not do the home any justice at all and it is far larger than we envisaged, both inside and outside. The home is surrounded by flower beds and tens of pots giving it a ‘country cottage’ feel. The pool is larger than you’d imagine from the photos and split into a shallow side for a gentle paddle and a deeper side for swimming. The home is brilliantly stocked – so often we hire places where there are six plates, six chairs and so forth but Mountain View could easily accommodate 14 guests. Everything is clean and well maintained. The hosts, Stuart and Nelly were fantastic both before and during our stay (including lovely touches such as a welcome pack of wine and home-made food upon arrival and gifts when we departed). It is an hour and ten minutes from Sofia, twelve minutes from the nearest grocery store and just over twenty minutes from the nearest supermarket (which is excellent). We had some great days out to caves and local scenery and would highly recommend Plovdiv, around two and half hours away (you’d need a very early start and late finish to truly give the place justice unless you had an overnight stay there). We had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our thanks go to Nelly and Stuart for a fantastic summer holiday! Who’s it best for? 1) Those looking for peace, quiet and family time. In particular those that want great scenery and a good hard relax. It’s perfect for nature watchers and we saw a couple of large birds of prey and a Golden Oriole. 2) Those that want a large holiday home with space, fresh air, a fantastic pool and other entertainment like badminton and table tennis. 3) Those wanting to be in a rural location but not too disconnected (the country’s capital is just over an hour away with shopping centres, major sights and entertainment venues) Who isn’t it for? 1) Those that want to walk into bars/restaurants and want clubs, nightlife – it is rural Bulgaria. 2) Those expecting to have a ‘Costa del Holiday’ – few locals speak any English at all so you will have to learn the hellos/goodbyes/excuse me/thank you and so on. We went in summer but I can imagine that the home is absolutely wonderful in the winter and both the main house and the annexe have woodburners. Initially, we were nervous about booking due to: 1) We thought that the outbuilding was separate. It is not and the hosts only allow one family on the plot at a time 2) We envisaged that the owners lived on the same plot. They don’t and are faultless hosts – a perfect blend of being available when needed but also respecting your privacy. Both Stuart and Nelly...”
Guest house "old oven" is located in. Lopyan, Etropole Municipality, only 82 km from Sofia. Village Lopyan is one of the oldest in the region. His story begins at the time of the Thracians. The remains of the fortress Streaks city rising above the village, prove that assertion. Lupus tribe that inhabited these lands, giving the name of the village. One of the landmarks of the village is the church "St. Peter and Paul ", built between 1858 and 1864.
“We’ve been in Starata Furna for 5 days, and it was a relaxing, unforgettable holiday. We had an amazing bedroom, with fireplace and jacuzzi, beautifully decorated. Lopyan is a little and beautiful village near the Balcans, where you can smell fresh air and the only noise that you hear is the water flowing in the river that goes through the whole village. Yanko is a perfect host, and he’s a lot more than that: he told us many stories about Bulgaria, he showed us the beauty of the surroundings, he took us to ride horses and cooked for us every day fantastic meals from the bulgarian tradition. He also taught us how to prepare a perfect yogurt! All of this with lots of kindness and care. He made us feel like at home, and we already want to come back!”
